A Breakfast Treat

Hampton Bays High School students enrolled in the district’s culinary arts program honed their skills by preparing and serving breakfast to local veterans on Jan. 9. 

The chefs-in-training cooked up eggs, bacon and other breakfast dishes for a group of 13 veterans who normally meet monthly at the Merry Maid. With the local restaurant closed for the season, however, the school welcomed the veterans for the delicious breakfast. 

The morning meal also provided student reporter Natalie Gomez with the opportunity to interview the veterans for a school newspaper article she is writing.  

The veterans greatly appreciated the hospitality of the school and took up a collection to donate to the school’s culinary program.
